Alternative swingarms

This may tie in with performance, but are there *any* aftermarket swingarms for the 2011 versys 650? I haven't been able to find one at all.

It is my understanding that the alloy swing arm from the Versys is highly sought after by those who race Ninjas and ER6s. Lighter and stronger than any other design. That said, @jdrocks has been swapping to the steel tube swing arm for his creations as they are easier to modify or repair.

2011 V650 in Black, well accessorized.

Yeah my biggest thing is I'm trying to get my bike to get lower. The previous owner did install that one motowerk lowering kit, but I want to lower it about another half inch or inch. I'm gonna see about lowering the front end about half an inch to see how that feels. What I'm trying to do is sport out the Versys. I've made a decent amount of progress on it so far, and people in my city seem to really like it, so I'm going to continue going through with it.
